You can help us to transform lives for decades to come.

At Transform we work in partnership with donors to transform the lives of local people in need.

Throughout our history we are fortunate to have received some very generous major donations. We worked with these donors to ensure their generosity would make a significant and lasting difference to homeless and vulnerable people in our community.

Philanthropy case study

Girl at front doorWe were approached by a very generous couple, Mr and Mrs M, who wanted to support our work with homeless and vulnerable people.

The couple, who wish to remain anonymous, offered to purchase a property and make it available for use by Transform. We met with Mr and Mrs M to discuss their wishes and to explain how their kind offer would benefit the people we support.

Transform’s development team worked with Mr and Mrs M to identify a one-bedroom flat that was suitable. The couple purchased the flat and agreed to lease it to us on a rent-free basis for 12 years.

Thanks to Mr and Mrs M’s generosity, Transform was also able to purchase a second one-bedroom flat. The mortgage on this second property is funded by the rent from the two flats; an arrangement that is only possible thanks to the first flat being offered to us rent-free. By the end of the 12-year arrangement, the second flat will be largely paid for.

Each flat now provides a home for a local person who would otherwise be homeless. Both clients receive specialist support from Transform to help them get their lives back on track. Thanks to the generosity of Mr and Mrs M, we can transform even more lives, for decades to come.
